Blossom Verlinsky’s Artist’s Statement

Secret Life of Colors

All that I have experienced, dreamt and digested has been synthesized through color and is the subject of my paintings. My interest in the natural world and geology has a profound effect on my art. My love of Asian Art, Medieval Illumination, Bonnard, Klimt, Matisse and Picasso have also found their way into my art. In addition, I have been deeply inspired by my studies with Ad Reinhardt, Mark Rothko, Kurt Seligmann, Burgoyne Diller, Alfred Russell and Jimmy Ernst and other giants of Abstract Art and continue the traditions of their teachings.

I begin a painting using a large brush, quickly and spontaneously putting down large strokes. I then place layer upon layer of paint. This glazing produces a magical effect…a richness and depth of color. I experiment with a variety of mixed colors and emphasize these colors purposely, using decoration and pattern to create a beautiful painting. The glint of sunlight on the threads of a spider’s web or edge of a plane are accented with gold paint using tiny brushes. I then fold the linen I paint on. Further emphasizing a sense of memory and recollection. Deeply personal myths emerge from my subconscious as I continue to explore my relationship with my inner self.
